For those unaware, Australian Federal Court Judge Brendan Murphy had ordered the South Korean technical giant 14 million Australian dollars (about 9.8 million US dollars) within 30 days. In addition, the brand will have to pay another 140.
Samsung takes an important step, and is the first to send 3nm chips
Samsung 3nm chips use GAA (Gate All Around) transistor technology; providing more efficient power consumption and better performance compared to FinFET already in use. The new solution will be used to produce processors designed for servers, data centers; as well as advanced chipsets for smartphones, tablets, wearables, laptops, desktops and other electronics. The company started developing GAA in the early 2000s and successfully applied it for the first time in the production of 3nm chips in 2017. After several years of research and testing, the production of new solutions began. In particular, 3nm chips will be supplied to a Chinese mining company. Samsung’s main competitor in the semiconductor contract manufacturing market, TSMC, will begin manufacturing 3nm chips around the fourth quarter of 2022. Both will compete for the right to take orders from major suppliers such as AMD, Apple, MediaTek, NVIDIA and Qualcomm. However, we will continue to watch events develop in the coming weeks.
